    Heh... I'm in talks with a few of the ones in this thread and Caster DID come out of this. Things DO take time- especially when it's not the day job and I had some...fun...a while back in the Courts that's not wholly over with yet. No, nothing involving all of this- just...something else with another venture and it wasn't my problem, it was something someone else caused.

      Aye, I'd also definitely like to see Torchlight.
      For people who don't know, there is a thread in the Torchlight forums asking for a Linux port.

      It's mostly 8 pages of newly registered members with one post supporting the Linux version.

        Added to the list formally as a front-runner looking into item.

        For the rest, I'm going back through the thread and updating the list proper and contacting a few of the studios for the titles on the "looking into" list over the next week or so. We'll see what comes of some of it.

        • Updated: List items.

          Added a few to the looking into list- I'll add more from the threads (seems there's also a few stragglers over in the original thread...). I've got a few inquiries out already and planning on adding a few more to the mix here shortly. In another couple of days I intend on updating the list further and probably starting a new thread. Hopefully, I'll have the close on another deal here shortly on one of the top items in the looking into list.

            Any hints on what that may be?

            Or do you mean literally the top of the looking into list? Natural Selection 2 maybe?

            • Did you guys see my post in the other thread about Populous?
              I figured this is the newer thread

              • Populous is owned by EA now? That could be a problem?

                • Oh, I just checked damn them : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populous

                  for "the Beginning" as well -.- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populous:_The_Beginning

                    Sadly, odds aren't good for either right at the moment. To be sure, they registered new trademarks on "Populous" and a few of their other back-catalog franchises. Odds are good they're going to be doing something with Populous and it's going to make it that much harder. Which stinks- I liked Populous, Populous2, and Populous3.

                    • Serious Sam HD. Need I say more?

                      Edit: Or would be eating into Ryan's territory as he ported the first two...

                      • Serious Sam 2 never got out any further than beta form, so I would guess Croteam lost interest in Linux?

                        • I went through the list of games available at gog.com a few minutes ago, and i think "Evil Genius" would be a really cool port.

                          Never played that game before, but that basebuilding, similar to dungean keeper, within a "Austin Powers"-like Szenario sounds great to me. ;-)

                          • I just discovered Zombie Driver. It's a "kill zombies with a car" game and it's using the OGRE engine. it looks pretty nice.

                              • @maxx: The guys that created zombie driver said they will port it to linux

                                " What's next for Exor Studios after your first release?
                                ... Besides that we would like to create Linux and Mac ports and ... "
